SIMON: The World Series moves to Texas tonight, with the Rangers and the Cardinals tied at one game each. A ninth-inning rally pushed the Rangers past the St. Louis Cardinals in game two on Thursday. NPR's Mike Pesca will be at the ballpark in Arlington tonight for game three.
Mike, thanks for being with us.
MIKE PESCA: You're welcome.
SIMON: And, look, we promise not to pull you if it looks like you can't handle the question. OK? Don't worry about that.
SCOTT SIMON, host: This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. Libyans are preparing to declare the liberation of their country two days after the death of Moammar Gadhafi. NATO plans to end its seven-month mission in the country on October 31. But the manner in which Gadhafi died remains a question that the United Nations and human rights organizations want answered. NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro joins us from Tripoli. Lourdes, thanks for being with us.
SCOTT SIMON, host: As we said, NATO is winding down its military mission in Libya and NATO ambassadors meeting in Brussels say that the air campaign will end by October 31, seven months after it began. We're joined now by the U.S. permanent representative to NATO, Ambassador Ivo Daalder, who is in Brussels. Mr. Ambassador, thanks so much for being with us.
